Ensuring that your current Medicare Bad Debt log is compliant with applicable audit standards.
Medicare Fiscal Intermediaries have received guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to put increasing scrutiny on provider-based Medicare Bad Debts that are included on the cost report. As a result, auditors have stepped up the intensity of their audits.
